I am wondering something. I recently got my LTCF permit. I hunt Predators at night along with hunting coons with hounds at night. Sometimes I hunt with people I have never met except for through the net or over the phone. I normally in these instances do not carry a firearm with me so that I can have my focus on the other hunter at all times to make sure he is safe. Also while running coon hounds at night normally only one guy carry's a gun and that is normally a .22lr single shot. Is it legal to carry a semi auto pistol for defense only? I would not use it for dispatching of game at all. With the latest events that have happened it makes me feel unsecure going into the woods without a weapon. It truely is a crying shame though that you need to wonder about other hunters but I guess it is just the day and age we live in. Thanks for any help.
